      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $18.78
      CO:
      $3.62
      BU (Hero):
      $10.00
      SB:
      $10.35
      BB:
      $6.78


      Preflop: Hero is BU with K, K.
      MP3 raises to $0.30, CO folds, Hero raises to $1.00, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.70.

      Flop: ($2.15) 2, 6, A (2 players)
      MP3 bets $1.02, Hero calls $1.02.

      Turn: ($4.19) A (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($4.19) 4 (2 players)
      MP3 bets $1.99, Hero calls $1.99.

      Final Pot: $8.17.

      I had few hands, he had stats like 15/15.

      Flop: That DB looks like PP or even air trying to take down the pot. It could also be a set waiting for a raise. I don't think an A would DB there often.

      Turn: Another ace makes it less likely that he has an ace. Should I bet here so I won't face a bet on the river?

      River: Could be a bluff, but not very likely because he should know I have atleast a pair. So his range is reduced to a set and Ax?

      Hello Tosh5457,

      Boh, I'd most likely play the same way. I mean with Checking on turn we might even induce him to bluff or as well at the same time on river we might get value from weaker PPs. There ain't that many draws from we should protect. Nice hand!

      Also obviously the donking doesn't make sense. :D If he did it with Ax then take a note.

      Best regards.

      But well as you may understand that he may easily even have worse PPs as you after you Check behind on turn.
